About the host:

Shaun Petersen was born in Lavender Hill – Cape Town – South Africa in 1979 on April 27.

He had a rough upbringing growing up without his dad, raise by his single Mom. He won’t make excuses for his area of living as it is overrun with gangsters and drugs. Being born there he have overcome the impossible yet it is possible to stay away from all that is bad. Some of his friends weren’t so lucky as they lost there lives to drugs and gangs.

He currently has 4 jobs which is coaching soccer at two YMCA community center’s, Simply Sports Football Club and doing dog walking at Throw me a Bone. He is working hard so he can help his family and give back to his community – Lavender Hill

This letter is on behalf of the Lavender Hill Football Club & Steenberg High School, he is trying to host a soccer tournament next year in his local community to uplift the youth. The aim of the tournament is to see what talent we have in our communities and to give them the opportunity to raise above all the gangsterism, drugs and killings. 

He would like to bring a group of U12 primary and U16 high schools boys to the USA to play in a tournament in New York City 2020. To show that with a little help anyone can achieve greatness!! 

So with your help we hope to accomplish and build a better community by using soccer to bring the youth together and away from the norm(gangs & drugs)!!
